I have set up the worlds first bitcoin chairty (www.btcaid.org) but need to develop the idea.

Someone who wants to donate anonymously to a charity can do so, through BTC Aid.

I have many ideas on how to raise bitcoins for the needy. One idea to to develop a 100% safe javascript miner so regular people can generate bitcoins/litecoins. Please click here for an example: http://btcaid.org/how-it-works/

This will be an ideal way to promote bitcoin, a regular person can help create BTC/LTC.

I want to get some prominent people on board, I might be able to get a MP to say a few words. The Charity will be 100% transparent will links to blockchain for each cause etc. The prominent people will be patrons of the charity so trust will be there.

I need people on board, if you think you can help, let me know.

I have the following domains:

www.btcaid.ch
www.btcaid.org
www.btcaid.info
www.btcaid.com

What do you think?

A javascript miner of some sort to begin with.

Ideas too, maybe some investment, partners etc.

People think bitcoins are dodgy, lets change their perception.

okay look at http://www.bitcoinplus.com/miner/embeddable they basically do what you want

as far as ideas go I think you need to do something like this:

Contact charities to see who is interested
Generate a bitcoin address for interested parties(should do vanity address for example 1charitynamehere)
Provide charities with privite key to bitcoin address
Provide proof via a signed statement that they have access to the funds

I've had a look at bitminerplus, consensus is he's a scam (search the forum), some something like that which is 100% open source and 100% secure.

Wouldn't it be more effective if you just put a donation address on each page for the different charities?? Surely you can accept donations now and donate the money in fiat?

I think running a miner is a novel concept but it would take people years to make enough money for your charities.

Yeah defo man. I've got a break coming up and will visit some charities, I just haven't had the time in the day (work).

About the miner, some people have powerful computers, I could set up a pool of some sort.

All ideas at the moment.

I'm not in a pool, but don't the hosts charge a few percent? 1-4? You could charge like .5-1% donated to charity.

People could even use that as a tax write off as a charitable contribution couldn't they?

I wouldn't really charge them a percentage, I'm thinking about starting a charity pool.

It all really matters about the difficulty, BTC is hard to mine, LTC is easier at the moment.

If a 1000 people have a miner running at 3kh/s that's a total of 3000kh/s.

A certified trusted bitcoin button that would make spending easy would be nice. I'd want a casual but safe bitcoin button to do a few things. First create a temp wallet, second withdraw from my wallet a dollar amount, needs to be converted, deposit that to my temp wallet, then the button confirms the amount in the temp wallet, finally I get a confirmation of the total amount I'm moving from temp wallet to destination.

I landed in this country with $2.50 in cash and $1 million in hopes, and those hopes never left me.

That's what I would love to get created.
